College of Health Sciences Student Government Association

Mission

The Student Government Association (SGA) is a committee of students representing all programs within the College of Health Sciences (CHS): Audiology, Clinical Nutrition, Health Sciences (BS, PhD), Health Systems Management, Medical Lab Science, Occupational Therapy, Imaging Sciences, Perfusion Technology, Physician Assistant, Research Administration, Respiratory Care, Speech-Language Pathology and Vascular Ultrasound. The SGA strives to support the University and College missions by acting as an informal student government body and social committee. The creation of SGA is a vehicle to further unite the student body by facilitating communication among students, faculty, and CHS leadership.

Objectives and goals

The CHS-SGA will provide opportunities for Rush University students to become involved within the Rush community and the College of Health Sciences through various events, networking activities, and community service activities.  The SGA will not only orchestrate its own events, but will also participate in other Rush-related events hosted by RUcaring and other similar organizations.  Our goal is to have students from the various departments and disciplines of Rush University establish an open network of communication and support.  We hope to create relationships among the disciplines that benefit all parties through the sharing of knowledge and expertise of the various healthcare fields.  Through active representation, students may strive to enhance their undergraduate and graduate academic and social experiences during their time at Rush University.
